Happy Birthday Laia Puppies Yesterday and Today!
June 3rd we went to the vet for Laia's x-ray and found out she was expecting 11 Puppies!!! Oh my goodness still in shock over that!
Yesterday afternoon Laia went into the early stages of labor and at 7 PM are first puppy was born. Silly me thought it was a boy but it was a girl! Our Missy Pinkz Girl! 7:34 and our apricot Blue Boy was born! 8:02 Mr. Green Boy, a black boy followed by a chocoloate boy at 8:18, Mr. Yellow Boy. Got a slight break as the next puppy was born at 9:42 PM, another chocolate boy, Mr. White Boy and another chocolate boy at 10 PM, Mr. Red Boy!
Laia took a 2 hour break, potty time, ice cream time, and a bit of a nap (for her not me!) and at Midnight at little black boy was born, Mr. Turq Boy. Followed quickly at 12:10 by a chocolate girl, Missy Purple Girl. 1:22 AM and another chocolate girl, Missy Green Hearts.
After that things really slowed down with the next puppy not being born until 4:36 AM. I was just preparing things for a possible run to the emergency vet and actually just got off the phone with them when contractions started and Missy Black "Black" girl was born.
After that everything went quiet. Laia was tired and napped with her puppies. The timing was such that I decided to wait for my vet to open instead of making the 45 minute drive to the emergency vet as I was also beat!
Right away after the vet opened I took Laia and the babies into the vet. They did an x-ray to verify the puppy or possible puppies and the position of the puppy. Then an ultra sound to make sure the puppy was still alive. The puppy was positioned right at the birth canal. We chose to give her a shot to induce contractions and see if we could get this puppy going. If not then we would be looking at a c-section, but luckily the shot worked, contractions kicked in.
Her water broke first so the puppy was born without the sac. I saw the little nose going in and out and then the tongue came out and she just stayed there. So I called for the vet who helped her the rest of the way out. A little apricot girl! Missy Tan Girl!
We stayed at the vet until she was dry and got a good meal in, the rest of the puppies also nursed and then we headed home. I was happy we had 11 healthy puppies!
